How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work?

If you choke a smurf, what color does it turn?

Why does the existence of other solar systems, like 51 Pegasi, upset the current ideas of how our solar system was formed?

What is the #1 pizza topping in Australia? (hint in America it is Pepperoni and in Japan it is Squid, OK maybe that is not a hint?!?!)

How many bathrooms are in the White House?

Why do they have braille on the drive-up windows at banks?

Can God make a rock so big that he himself cannot pick it up?

The average American does this 233 times in their lifetime?

What do Abe Lincoln, Walt Disney and Dan Akroyd have in common?

What is another word for Thesaurus?

Have you ever imagined a world without hypothetical questions?

A train, and a housefly, are heading directly at each other at a very high speed. The train and the fly then collide. Now obviously, the fly will hit the train, the train will overcome the fly, and the fly will head in the other direction.

Now the laws of physics state for an object to head in one direction, then have a 180 degree change (which the fly undergoes), then there must be an instant where said object experiences no motion. Think of a baseball, the instant the bat hits the ball, it has to stop for a brief second then go the other way.

So the question is: Since this is an elastic collision, and the fly undergoes a 180 degree turn in motion, and since the train is attached to the fly at this instant...

... does the fly, technically, stop the train?

Hanama bay is a state park only the park is actually the beach. It is a federal crime to fish there. You can see 40 feet down straight to the bottom and has rare strains of coral and the fish are so tame that they will swim right up to you to be fed. Even those scary ass stonefish.
